on the romney campaign plane that is end the near. indied, that was evident today in colorado springs with mr. and mrs. romney showing evident wear and tear, even getting a bit misty-eyed from the long flight. >> it has been quite a journey. it's coming to a close. we have three more days. >> it's no wonder emotions are running so high, particularly with new hoel o. polls out today showing romney down six in critical ohio. down two in his absolute must win florida. six, seven, eight years of campaigning and it's come down to this. romney still combing through the president's speeches trying to find anything that he might tether his message to, this time a line best served cold. >> yesterday the president said something you may have already heard, that i found troubling. spoke to an audience and said voting is the best revenge. he's asking us -- he is asking his supporters to vote for revenge. i'm asking you to vote for love of country. >> oh, for the love of christmas, three days to go. let's get right to our panel. with me here at democracy plaza is professor james peterson of lee high unive
their secret sauce that's more important than the polling is that mr. romney is winning independents. so there. romney has this thing in the bag. carl rove, for the republicans this year, he took to "the wall street journal" this week to patiently explain to the people who don't understand that these numbers that look so bad for mr. romney do not matter or they are wrong. or they are wrong and they don't noe matter. because he says democrats are not winning early voting by enough. and he says the polls make assumptions about turnout that he describes as absurd. it also describes some stuff that makes him believe romney is going to win like crowd size and closing arguments. that shows that mitt romney is totally going to win this thing. both are trying to convince the country it's obvious they are going to win. it's worth listening to the arguments and checking to see if the arguments are based in good sense. but honestly, it's also worth recognizing that every campaign on both sides does this every time. for example, here is how this particular phenomenon looked the day before the election in
. did you detect, perhaps, a subtle dig on mr. romney who spent today going against the guidelines established by the red cross and holding a campaign rally in ohio that was dressed up like a charity drive collecting food and other supplies when the red cross expressly asked people not to do that? >> well, what i think the president was doing was being commander in chief, and he continues to distinguish himself as someone who is focused on the needs of everyday americans, and this is more important to him even than the presidency. that's why he's going to be traveling to the site personally. that's why he had multiple personal conversations with the governor of new jersey. i think that this is yet another moment where you see the clear, striking difference between a president who has a heart for the american people and someone who simply wants to be president of the united states. >> indeed. professor peterson? >> i would agree. i mean, it's xration thcompassi shows through in times like these. it's humanity that shows through in times like these and it just seems clear that the pr
understands business and i do and that's why i'll be able to -- >> i'm not sure that mr. romney realizes that this week everyone's been reminded that americans need much in a president than the ability to make money. moments ago, another man noted for his business expertise, now leader of the nation's largest city, independent mayor mike bloomberg, has just endorsed president obama for four more years. let's get right to our panel. with us from washington, msnbc political analyst david corn, author of "47 percent." and joy reid managing editor of thegrio.com. of who always brings 100%. >> borrowing the words of calvin coolidge who said the business of america is business. the most respected businessman turned politician mike bloomberg has just endorsed the president. what do you make of that move? >> what was interesting was one of the reasons mayor bloomberg cited, which was climate change. looking at the devastating impact of the storm sandy -- >> due mean that nonsensical, mumbo jumbo, nonsense that isn't believable. >> we will remember when mitt romney joked, actually joked, about ri
way across the parking lot to get the governor on stage for his event so we can cover it. mr. romney had not mentioned the president by name over the course of the last few days in the aftermath of hurricane sandy. it was a respite of the politics. but that all came to an abrupt end when the president returned to the trail today and mr. romney was very aggressively going after him for having suggested earlier this week something that he had proposed at the beginning of the year and was rejected by republicans. the idea of a consolidation of a host of government departments and agencies under one new cabinet secretary for business. mr. romney took that and laughed at it watch. we don't need a second of business to understand business. we need a president who understands business and i do. that's how i will get this economy going. >> this is an idea that republicans should have rushed to embrace when it was proposed on january 13th. a proposal for smaller, smarter and more efficient government. i thought that's the sort of thing that republicans supported. >> well, it is certainly the
. mr. romney has gotten to 10%. very, very close. battleground, numbers are reversed. romney reached 14% of the likely voters in battleground states casting a ballot on tuesday. obama only got to 13%. they're even in the polls. aapparently they're even even in get out the vote effort. they're down to wire. no indication it will change in five days. >> dana: carl, thank you. we'll go to ed henry, with president obama in las vegas. ed, we have a new nickname for you coined by greg gutfeld. we thought you desevened one. election ed. take it away. >> reporter: i like it. that's great. just like campaign carl. bottom line, they are promising a new message for the president today. it will be more positive, less of the negative tone, ripping to mitt romney. this is his final case to what he did in wisconsin today, talking about what he would do in a second term. laying out that he wants to finish the change he talked about in the last four years. he did go negative on romney. not giving it up. he said romney claiming to be an agent of change and he knocked millions of people off the health ins
nominee as we close in on the election day. mr. romney has been spending a tremendous amount of time in the last couple of days talking about his desire to be a bipartisan president, reach across the aisle and deal with democrats to meet the challenge that nation faces, challenges he argues that mr. obama has not been able to meet and been too partisan and unwilling to meet with republicans on it. in the event in richmond, he singled out the house leader eric cantor and asked when is the last time you met with the president? cantor said it was a year ago. romney said i will not do that. i will meet often with the democrats and create the type of bipartisan agreements that move the country forward. he is making the argument that it's time for big change. borrowed rhetoric from the 2008 obama campaign that he says the president hasn't stuck to. he will wrap up the third event in virginia beach, virginia today. fully ten more battleground states that he plans to visit between now and tuesday night. he will wrap it up with a big speech in new hampshire, where he has a vacation home. that
has mr. romney ahead by 3.8 points. so that's the 7:00 hour. and then in the 8:00 hour, polls will be closing in these 18 states. of these states, again, there will be three that we're going to be watching most closely. florida, pennsylvania, and new hampshire. the "real clear politics" polling average right now in florida has romney ahead. in pennsylvania the polling average says it is president obama who's ahead by 4.6 points. in new hampshire, again, president obama ahead with a 1.3 lead. that's the 8:00 hour. at 9:00, we'll have polls closed in all those places, and the blinking states here will be the ones that are closing. 14 states mostly in the midwest and the south. of the -- southwest, excuse me. of these 14 states, the states everybody's going to be watching are three. colorado, michigan, and wisconsin. here's what it looks like right now in those states. polling average in the state of colorado, it's very close. president obama ahead by less than a point. in michigan, it's president obama ahead by three points. and in wisconsin, the polling average has mr. obama ah
or more in a major rally in ohio, mr. romney is using president obama's own rhetoric about voting against him. the president suggested that his supporters should vote for revenge mitt romney in colcalifornia spring and dubuque threw that back at the president. >> today president obama it was yesterday, you probably heard about he asked supporters to vote for revenge. i ask the american people to vote for love of country. >> mr. romny -- mr. romney said that over and over and over again in an attempt to cast mr. obama and his presidency as one of division and suggest he will unite the country and reach across the aisle in a bipartisan way. the romney complaint is that president obama made promiseless of hope and change and couldn't deliver. he couldn't because of grid lock that he caused. he simply doesn't have an administration to get things done. >> analyst said it is it like a courtroom where attorneys make the closing arguments. it is getting last, but we are hearing new lineups. >> that's right. and when you have the campaigns packing their calendars as busy as they have in 73 hours a
with hurricane sandy. mr. romney will continue to campaign. mrs. obama has cancelled events in new hampshire. it appears that mr. romney has to do. he a planned to going to new hampshire but it's not likely it's going ticking take place. the campaign is going out of it's a way they want to be a as conscientious as possible giving as much time and space and not tax can the resources, president obama went to the head of the federal emergency management office for a bit of a status report. mr. romney does not enjoy that power of incumbency but every hour lost to sandy is precious time that neither of these campaigns can really afford to give up. ohio has been an obama advantage in the polls for many, many days. romney campaign say they have caught up. new poll out from ohio, consortium of newspapers that mr. romney's momentum is not an actual tie at 49-49 apiece. >> harris: carl cameron, literally from the road. once again we'll carry that event live in ohio with governor romney and paul ryan coming up. >> gregg: sit down and put on your seat belts. making me nervous. >> massive cover-up or inc
points. but if you go to real clear politics and look at the average, mr. romney is up by half a point. mitt romney will be in virginia today live on c-span. brian moran, when you expect your candidate to return to the state? guest: he will be hero -- be here saturday and he has been here over and over. prince william, loudoun. coming again to prince william saturday night. which is nice. it is a spillover from being a battleground state. we have all the candidates coming in on a regular basis so fellow virginians get to see and hear from the candidates. of course, we have to put up with all of the television ads as well. but it is fun to have all the candidates in and it is important for virginians to hear from him. the president is working diligently to make sure the communities struck by sandy in new jersey and new york, working in a bipartisan way with governor chris christie from new jersey in surveying the damage. that is where government works, fema, a program governor romney called for eliminating during the republican debate -- guest: not all, absolutely false. -- governor rom
hampshire twice, the smallest swing state that may be edging in mr. romney's direction. >> cenk: all right, now where is it edging? lucky for you we have the numbers. latest polls 50%-47% in favor of president obama in ohio! now what did i tell you was key to the election night? you're going to look out for owin. that's "o" as in ohio "w" which is, "i," in "with a and nevada. they are there with the two two first baptist church to four-point--there with two two- two- to four-point lead. mark hamil, ana kasparian michael shure, jayar jackson get going. >> when i get rattled with these polls, and andreas must i think they skew the national polls. >> cenk: they're mad at nate silver for doing math. oh i can't believe he contemplated the polls. >> it's reassuring to me. attacking his sexuality calling him gay. where did that come from? what does that have to do with it. >> cenk: anybody who does math is obviously gay. didn't you miss that memo? >> i think mark passed his 10 minutes. is he banned. >> cenk: let's go to a-21, early voting is critical in ohio. there we have fascinating numbers. on
said that's the flag on the flag pole here next to mr. romney. ained reached over and grabbed the flag and pulled it out and the was as if electricity was running through my arm because i thought about the people who lost their lives and they walked in danger's way for learning, for something bigger than themselves, for us. i think of our men and women in uniform and their willing tons walk in harm's way for us, for freedom. [applause] i have a favorite verse in one of our 2345rb8 hems, america the beautiful. in that hem him we talk about the mountains majesty and all the characters of our land but there is a verse that touches me more deeply that says heroes proved in liberating strife who more than self-their country love and mercy more than life. what our veterans and members of the armed forces raise your hand so we can recognize you? [applause] thank you. it is part of the american national character to live for things bigger than yourself. some do that in extraordinary ways, invisible ways, other do it in meaningful ways in their lives and family's life. my sister is a hero to me
president obama. >> he's smart accomplished and i backed obama the last election, and i'll back mr. romney this election. it's all about the economy. >> romney's message welcoming those in attendance including town thain wilbur ross, and john catsmatidis. he said he needs to do more than save america but save america's soul. >> you're going to save america's soul using those fat cat bankers those ass who ruined our economy. who are you going to vote for unless you want to do the exact opposite than those idiots did when they crashed the economy in 2008. look at these numbers. these are amazing. s&p 500 up 80%. dow jones up 70%. that is the fifth best equivalent period since 1900. so terrific in that regard. how about corporate profits they're through the roof. under obama 77.9% increase. they have to be ecstatic with obama. but they're not. it's never enough. more more, more, more. and obama has the nerve to once slightly criticize them. this is what he said. >> did i not run for office to be helping out a bunch of fat cat bankers on wall street. >> cenk: oh, my god how can he call them fa
bless you, god bless america and god bless the next first lady of the united states, mrs. ann romney. ♪ >> i'm so touched backstage listening to this extraordinary woman. to be able to stand next to a woman like her and know that she and jack represent so much of what we love about america. they are such wonderful examples to us. it really brought tears to my eyes thinking about how amazing it is. to think anyone like that would even know who we are because i have add mired jack all of my life and add mired his way of living. his way of achieving his greatness in so many areas outside of the golf course. and i know -- [applause] i know ohio is their home state and this is where so many of you folks know them and love them. and as so many americans across the country admire and respect them. i'm also humbled to be on this stage with so many extraordinary women. and there's a few men. this is great. jane mentioned we're on the girl's bus. i really like rolling with the girls let me just tell you will right now. i've had a great time with cindy mccain, she was with me in virgi
. if the storm passed enough and opportunity to take part in recovery and clean-up action. possible mr. romney would head for the seacoast. at this point, all carefully choreographed final stage craft in final day of the campaign have been dashed. 200 hours less, really, before the election. exactly a week from tomorrow. the romney campaign doesn't exactly know what it will be doing for the next 24 to 48 hours. >> bret: still question mar marks. >> very much so. >> bret: still ahead, more inconsistencies between what the obama administration knew and what it said about the libya terror attack. first, karl rove and joe trippi on who is ahead in the presidential voting and what really matters, the electoral college map. we do it every week. coming up. as we head to break, cape may, new jersey, look in darkness there at the rin and the wind. keep it here. i know the name of eight princesses. i'm an expert on softball. and tea parties. i'll have more awkward conversations than i'm equipped for because i'm raising two girls on my own. i'll worry about the economy more than a few times before they'r
virginia. garrett, we know that mr. romney is back to the -- i guess the campaign line he unveiled before hurricane sandy that he's the change candidate in this election. obviously, people instantly thinking about the candidate for change four years ago. >> that's right, tamron. it was after sort of a brief pause to focus on hurricane sandy earlier this week. we're back on the main message of the romney campaign right now, which has been underscored in the last few days, this idea that mitt romney is the change candidate. this is a change election. they say the path to victory for governor romney, it's to focus on the people who are unsatisfied with president obama's leadership and say we can bring the change, big change, bold change. he actually used the word "big change" 12 times in a speech the other day. they're trying to hammer this message home to serve many who might be disaffected by the president. hopefully turn some of these blue states like virginia back into the republican column. >> and obviously we know the importance of virginia. he's spending the entire day there. that's a
. [ cheers and applause ] he said that's the flag at the end of the table here by mr. romney. i reached over, grabbed the flag, pulled it out. it was as if electricity was running through my arm. i thought of the people in our space program who have taken risk, put themselves in harm's way for learning, for pioneering, for knowledge, for us, for their fellow citizens. think of the men and women in our military, as the governor indicate t indicated, who serve our nation and put themselves in harm's way. [ cheers and applause ] plus, there's a verse in one of our national hymns i enjoy most. the hymn is "america the beautiful." the verse says "oh beautiful for heros proved in liberating strife who more than self their country love and mercy more than life." thanks to our veterans and all those that serve. thank you, also -- it [ cheers and applause ] thank you also to people of america's national character that serve in other ways that, serve in ways to exemplify something about our american spirit. that is that we live for things bigger than ourself. it seems to be part of our national charac
days to go. dagen: picking up something that mr. varney was talking about earlier. does this stall mr. romney's momentum? >> i lived in washington, d.c., you guys are in new york, i know a lot of the viewers are in places like connecticut and new jersey, i have never seen the private sector step forward so much. people are acting neighborly and charitably towards their fellow man. it is a great thing to see. we do not always need government to step in and solve these problems. most of the heroic things have been done by businesses, families and churches. president barack obama has dealt with this crisis. it did not hurt that the governor of new jersey, you know, had very complimentary things to say about him. we will see if this caused a bit of a stall in the bit from a momentum we have seen over the last few weeks. connell: we stopped to asking questions like that the past couple days, for obvious reasons. we try to look at these sites that aggregate the polls. on average now it is all tied up nationally. i am sure the national polls that it was as we get to the last few days. the pr
you. overall, mr. romney, governor romney at the time, he left the state with debt. you hear how we set up a slush fund and all these great things he did for the state, which are totally untrue. i have to say, i have lived in new hampshire and a town over from where his vacation home is. the campaign itself, where he is changing positions it, from the time he was governor of massachusetts from what he is saying today, he has totally changed his whole direction. he was pro-life when he was the governor in massachusetts and now he is -- or he was not pro- life back then, and now he's pro-life. guest: certainly, candidates, as they go through time, can. change can i think someone might say the president, you could hold out certain examples of the president's record. changes positions. certainly between next tuesday and inauguration day, no matter who wins, you might see some curbing of some of these positions that were taken during the campaign. it's just a guess. but some of these things will change over time it. candidates will take a step back sometimes from their harder position th
to eliminate it. at a republican primary debate last year, mr. romney was asked whether emergency management was a function that should be returned to the states. he not only agreed, he went further. mr. romney not only believes that states acting independently can handle the response to a vast east coast storm better than washington, but that companies can do an even better job. he said it was immoral for the federal government to do all these things if it means increasing the debt. many don't like the idea of free aid for poor people or think people should pay for their bad decisions, which this week includes living on the east coast. >> what do you want me to say? >> nothing. i really don't want you to say anything. >> no, i want to say something. >> okay. go ahead and say something. >> that's absolutely ridiculous. >> okay. >> i think what mitt romney is absolutely ridiculous. >> oh. okay. >> this is what happens, though, when you're afraid to go after medicare, medicaid and social security and defense spending and reform taxes to bring more revenue to the federal government, you have to
's insane. i think mr. mitt romney ought to be pushing back. >> as a quick extension, his idea instead of doing that with the economy back on its heels, raise taxes, which he will do if he gets reelected and impose more regulation on the economy. that's his solution to the problem we had before. >> i think the contrast in these closing arguments are very telling. obama decides to double down on the character assassination and class warfare, romney is talking bipartisanship, and he was a governor of a blue state. one sounds more presidential than the other. >> paul: the president is throwing out attempts to say, well, i'm going to get a big budget deal with congress, i real want bipartisan immigration deal, hey, maybe, even tax reform. >> this is really important, yeah, because he's being very critical of romney and last weeks we're seeing the glimmer of hope and change obama and trying to get that back and the testament with independent voters and women and they voted for him in 2008 because, again, he claimed to be a new type of politician. i don't think this was working. it's falling
across the aisle in a bipartisan way and got things done. >> steve: okay. mr. romney has talked about that, how he, you saw him at the debates talking about it, 75, 80% democrats, versus him, the lone republican governor. >> eric: fox news had a poll two nights ago that came out and found that 60% of people polled were interested in the economy and fiscal issues as their most important issues. mr. baker is on target with that. >> gretchen: let's talk about that working across the aisle. here is mitt romney. >> you want to see four more years with washington in gridlock? >> no. >> look, i know that the president wants to see four more years and that's his chant, four more years, four more years. our chant is this: five more days. all right [ cheers and applause ] by the way, i think i'll ask the leader, leader cantor, when was the last time you met with the president on the economy and jobs and the budget? he says almost a year. >> steve: meanwhile, it seems like the campaign has been going on for almost a year, actually longer. now it's down to not five days. it's four days. >> eric:
, and as was mentioned by mr. o'connell, the transition happened when romney went from more an extreme conservativist position to the middle. i think it's something members in congress should take note of, americans will award those coming to the middle in trying solve a problem. i believe the president will win, and i believe the senate will remain in the democratic hands and the house the republican, and as people come together, i think it should be a recognition that they want folks to come together and solve these problems. i think the president has tried to make his case he's ready to do that. >> ford looks anxious. >> i don't think the president will win, but i think it will be close, and the question really is who will win ohio. we may not know because of november 17th. i think locally mitt romney will win virginia, and if he wins virginia, florida, ohio, colorado or new hampshire, he'll be the next president. i think the president at this moment has a little bit better chance in the electoral college. >> i can't offer to shave my mustache when we win ohio, but i think that will happen. but i
